Lindsay Chambers was pursuing a PhD in history at Stanford University when she figured out her calling. And it had nothing to do with what she was learning in her seminars and lectures. “Redoing my own house while I was in school allowed me to tap into my artistic, creative side,” recalls Chambers. In between studying, she also managed to help redesign and redevelop a neighbor’s dilapidated house. “This is where I found my love for redesigning homes,” she adds. So after completing her master’s degree, she decided to turn her attention to her newfound passion. In 2011, she launched Hazel.Wood Design Group.
Chambers specializes in Northern and Southern California properties—from a 20th-century Queen Anne Victorian in Palo Alto’s historic Professorville neighborhood to a modern dwelling perched on a promontory in the Hollywood Hills. Custom elements are a hallmark of her work. For instance, for the Palo Alto residence, she devised a wallpaper that features black-and-white historical photos of the town from the same era as the house itself. While her projects may run the gamut, according to Chambers, they share her overarching vision for “creating warm, inviting, fun spaces that are elegantly understated.”
